East Phillips neighborhood group sues city to stop Minneapolis project over concerns for residents of color


A Minneapolis community nonprofit is suing the city to stop the development of a project it believes will disproportionately harm the health of people of color.

The East Phillips Neighborhood Institute, Inc. filed suit Friday in Hennepin County District Court against the city and the Minneapolis Public Works Department over the Hiawatha Campus Expansion Project.

The city decided that an assessment to evaluate the project’s environmental impact was not necessary, and violated state and federal laws by failing to apply for construction permits with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, the suit said.
